Unless someone has another recommendation, then invertebrates it is for the June photo contest.
Although, I've seen some pics of your star that would win just about any photo contest.

Default Just yellow and blue

I know this is a simple fish compared to the others in the contest but he's my favorite. I think the blue chromis accents him very well.

No, to my understanding they have a planktonic stage where they float along with everything else in the ocean, feeding on micro plankton and micro planktonic crustations. Also they would get sucked up into the protien skimmer.

Raising just 1 baby would be a challenge and best left up to mother nature.


Despite that it's nearly impossiable in captivity, i thought about setting up a huge shallow bin (like 600 gallons) of live rock and full cheatmorpha out in a sun room. With no skimmer. I am sure I would get something out of it.

Actually they are not planktonic. There is a gentleman in another forum that has had some success in breeding the fry. He's kept the fry alive for 2 weeks after hatching. But hasn't had success in keeping it longer.
